Birthday

Well, happy 20th birthday to my locost. Despite everything being "wrong" with it (1600 pinto, 4 speed box) I still thoroughly enjoy driving it. So thanks to the much maligned Ron Champion (OK, it was on the road for 1800 not 250) and the good old Locost Car Club (any old members still about?)

Happy Birthday car!


Bob still shows up here every now and again!

I imagine SteveM was a member too. Maybe Hicost?

Cheers,
James

As James said, yep i was there, also Marcus, was an old member,

I was reading one of those leaflets only a few weeks ago, wasnt it Rory Perritt who produced them ?





Thats was probably spelt wrong, or had some grammer, that the "grammer police have to have a moan at

Glad to see some oldies still about. Ah, the newsletter, I think i still have some in the loft, must look them out. It was Rory who did it. I made him a filler nozzle and screw in cap. Can't do that now. Wonder if he finished his car.

I'm still calling in a few times a week. I'm a refugee from TOL (the other list)

I can't remember what member number I am, but pretty sure it's a double digit one.

Car is still on the road (a little late this year) but it'll still be in the family until I can't get in and out

Good memories here, it's still a haven of good advice and little drama all these years later.

Just had a look at my car's registration document - it's 15 years old! Where did all that time go...

(Just as well I did take a look - its MOT is due next week)

I've been here since 2003 and my car is 16 years old soon. I was also a member of the Locost Car Club, I even wrote a couple of articles that got published

Mine will be 15 this November as well.

I'm using it now more than ever!
